Ken Doctor

Media analyst & Newsonomics author, USA

Ken Doctor’s work centers on the disruption and transformation of the news business in the digital age. For 15 years, he has covered both the great successes of digital transformation and democracy-crippling losses of local news across the Western World.  He speaks, writes and consults with companies and associations on four continents, and has become a go-to source, much quoted in media across the globe, on the landscape and the road ahead.

Newsonomics is the word he coined to describe this new discipline of understanding the money flow within the print and broadcast transition to digital. His Newsonomics site collects his broadcast appearances, and his work, including his columns for Harvard’s Nieman Journalism Lab. 

That career followed a 21-year one with Knight Ridder, then the country’s second-largest newspaper company, where he served in a number of top newsroom and digital strategy roles.  

Ken has been at work on his new local news model, Lookout Local, with the announcement of its launch time and place out in 2020 – and of its strategic partnership with the L.A. Times.
